thanks to all you who'd previously taken the time to review this offering. be it not for y'all, i probably never would've thought about this title, so thank you again! if you're a "buff" (or a NYT's fan) or just want a nice, neat condensed, well-edited compilation, look no further!
The reliance on telegraph messages to send the news was also quite limiting as battle results written about were sometimes quite wrong after the battles were over.
The writing style and the size of the print makes for slow reading but then I take more time, while resting my eyes, to reflect and wonder about what I have read.
It is also interesting to see that many of the issues which caused the Civil War were never completely resolved by the war's end. States Rights still drives much of today's political disagreements and while there is no more slavery,the achievement of peoples civil rights has been laboriously slow to evolve. And prejudice is still much stronger than we seem to think it should be.
This book is a wonderful and useful addition to my personal Civil War library.
The only possibly negative thing about the book is it's size.. It measures 1 foot tall and 9 inches wide.. I guess you would call it a coffee table book.
